I pulled into a parking space at Wal-mart. An elderly lady–more elderly than I–stood next to her open trunk and was laboriously lifting her purchases from her shopping cart and placing them into her trunk. Just as I swung open my door, another lady appeared. She was on her way into the store, but she stopped to offer the elderly lady assistance. “Can I help you with those?” she offered as she simultaneously lifted the bags and placed them carefully into the lady’s trunk. The lady was thrilled to have the help; she even said, “I wish I could take... Continue reading

"And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21 (NKJV) No study of the names of God could be complete without addressing the name of Jesus. The name Jesus is so familiar to us that it's difficult to imagine a time when it wasn't a part of our vocabulary. But despite its familiarity, there's meaning in this name that's not so obvious on the surface. For starters, Jesus is a transliteration of the Hebrew name Yeshua or Yehowshuwa. Dig a little deeper and you... Continue reading

On a recent trip to Washington DC, I was reminded of the unique power of words well spoken or well written when I visited the Lincoln memorial along with my wife and children. After viewing Lincoln's immense, gaunt figure, I read his speeches which were engraved in the walls on either side of the carving of the 16th American president. Lincoln's speeches are powerful and moving, even now after seven-score years or more have passed. Perhaps they are more powerful than many speeches because they are embedded with spiritual truth and the words of the Bible. God, too, used powerful... Continue reading

I ran across the brilliant poem below a couple weeks ago and thought I would share it with you. When I first met Christ It seemed as though life was rather like a bike ride, But it was a tandem bike, And I noticed that Christ Was in the back helping me pedal. I don't know just when it was that He suggested we change places, But life has not been the same since. When I had control, I knew the way, It was rather boring, but predictable... It was the shortest distance between two points. But when He took... Continue reading

Tim Burton's fantasy film, Alice in Wonderland, hits theaters today, March 5, 2010. I was recently browsing the internet and ran across this interesting and brilliant article by Lane Palmer revealing how our spiritual walk with Jesus Christ is a real adventure in a real wonderland. "There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter...Which luckily I am." -The Mad Hatter I don't know about you, but if I were in an uncomfortable situation with a room full...

Anyone who knows me knows that once I see a movie one time, I have no desire to see it again. However, earlier this week, I watched "The Nativity Story" movie with my family. I had seen this movie once before, but I decided to watch it again. In my opinion, this film is one of the best films ever made about the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It blessed my heart all over again in so many ways. As I was watching this film, God pointed out three important ways that He works in people's lives... Continue reading

Joy is a deep feeling of peace that many people desire but do not understand fully how to get. Many believe that one of the effects of joy is being able to live a care-free life. Some say joy is found in having solid relationships. Still others express that joy is simply enjoying the here and now with no concern for the future. Because many do not understand what true joy means, they end up seeking it in the wrong ways. Many believe that being rich will cause them to have true joy, therefore they go after money. Others focus... Continue reading

Here's a post from the beginning of Just Jesus: The Greatest Things Ever Said About the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived that will give you a little background information about the book: It is for sure that the main thing that matters in life, is whether or not one has a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. To borrow biblical terminology, what really matters is: “What think ye of Christ, whose Son is He?” This I know, anyone who has met this Man along the tragic road of life, and has received Him as their personal Saviour has never been...

A few days ago, filming wrapped for the next movie in the Chronicles of Narnia franchise, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The movie is now in post-production were all the movie people do their magical work to bring the fantastical world of Narnia to life once again. The film will be released sometime next December. When the first two Narnia films came out, Christians talked up the Biblical parallels that C.S. Lewis used in his stories. In The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, it was easy to see that Aslan, who died in Edmund's place, was a parallel... Continue reading

Though no one is certain of the religious beliefs of the French emperor Napoleon Bonaprte, and while on many occasions he criticized organized religion, Napoleon seemed to have a strong disposition toward the Person of Jesus Christ. This is evidenced by the many eloquent and persuasive statements about the Messiah that are attributed to him. Read below: The nature of Christ’s existence is mysterious, I admit; but this mystery meets the wants of man. Reject it and the world is an explicable riddle; believe it, and the history of our race is satisfactorily explained. _________________ I know men, and I... Continue reading
